T's Restaurant closed

T's Restaurant and bar, longtime a popular LGBT hangout in Uptown, has been shuttered by the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

An eviction notice dated March 26 had been posted on both the front and side doors of the business, located at 5025 N. Clark.

Owner Colm Treacy could not immediately be reached for comment.

He did, however, post a message on Facebook confirming the closure.

"Sometimes the universe gives us a sign of better things to come…" Treacy wrote. "Ts officially closed today…after many years of food, family and fun, we want to thank all that have traveled with us on this amazing journey and hope u (sic) will continue to do so as we move on to our next chapter. Much love to all and see you soon!! Love Colm…"

In October, Windy City Times reported that Treacy said he was facing his third Illinois Department of Revenue audit in five years and more than $100,000 in fines after he participated in an FBI sting against an auditor who solicited a bribe from him in 2007.

Treacy alleged he was facing the threat of closure over the fines, which he believed targeted him in retaliation for the sting.

This is a breaking story. Please check back for updates.
